Dedicated to Water Analysis
The Cecil AquaQuest water quality test spectrophotometer has been specially designed to cover the complete requirements of water analysis spectrophotometers. Both visible range and UV/visible range instruments are offered, each with or without an integral printer for convenient presentation of results, without the extra space required by an external printer.
Fast and Easy to Operate
Choosing a water quality test method complete with the appropriate sample pathlength could not be simpler. It takes only about 15 seconds to select the method and get the instrument set up and ready for measurement. Quick change sample holders each accommodating more than one sample pathlength add to convenience and speed up operation.
Cecil spectrophotometers are well known for their durability. The lamp is the most expensive consumable part on a spectrophotometer. A Cecil lamp will last for over 3 years, in contrast to a typical spectrophotometer whose lamps need changing multiple times per year. Over the life of the Cecil instrument this can amount to significant cost savings. Cecil takes pride in the lowest instrument maintenance costs in the industry.
Use with Any Brand Test Kit
AquaQuest can be used with any manufacturer’s water quality test kits. Save money by avoiding a spectrophotometer that locks you into expensive consumable contracts.
Exceptional Optical Performance and Stability
Superb performance is the result of the excellent specifications of the AquaQuest. Exceptionally high stability, low stray light, low noise and high wavelength-setting precision ensure that reliable and accurate measurements may be made to 3 Absorbance units.
Whatever special needs your laboratory may have, the AquaQuest spectrophotometer offers the flexibility, power and performance required. Wavelength scanning, cell programming, batch sampling, wavelength programming, time course plotting and reaction kinetics are all available.
All instruments are completely programmed for approximately 150 water quality test methods based on the proven range of Merck 'Spectroquant' test kits. Users may also develop their own methods and calibrations to be stored in security-protected memory for instant recall and use at any time.
Cecil will set up the analyzer so that at start-up it will go immediately to the wavelength of interest. There is no charge for this customization, a real convenience to those who use only one or two methods.
Cecil offers a complete range of sampling accessories. All instruments are fitted as standard with a special dual sample holder designed to accommodate both 10mm rectangular cuvettes and 16mm reaction tubes as supplied with many Merck test kits; no need to change holder when switching between the two. Sample holders take only seconds to change without the use of any tool. More advance sampling options include the sipette system, automatic cell changers, and batch sampling. For a more extensive description of sampling options request a brochure.
Important Measurements of Soil Health that You Might Have Made
So let’s assume you want to “better understand the effects of global change on forest biogeochemical cycles.” That’s a pretty tall order, so you’d want to start with something a little more manageable. If you’re at the University of Georgia you might establish five forest plots “along a natural elevation, temperature, moisture, and vegetation gradient.”
Things I Didn’t Know About Malaria
Well you learn something new every day. Okay, I try to learn something new every day. Today I succeeded with the help of a paper from a research team led by the Shoklo Malaria Research Unit in Thailand. I learned that “falciparum” is the most severe form of malaria. I didn’t even know there was
Disrupting Quorum Sensing to Neutralize Pathogens
If you’ve got to combat a resistant pathogen, you need to understand as much as you can about its mechanism of action and its pathogenicity. For example, the pan-drug resistant Acinetobacter baumannii bacterium’s pathogenicity is influenced by quorum sensing — chemical signals interchanged between individual bacteria. A research team led by the University of Madison–Wisconsin

Do you have curiosity, the ability to focus on details, and painstaking follow through? Would you like to work in the pharmaceutical industry, in energy development, or perhaps in food processing? Are you willing to get at least a bachelor’s degree, or maybe a master’s or PhD? Do you like wearing a lab coat and
Growth Characteristics of Aluminum Nanocrystals
Nanocrystalline materials hold promise for all sorts of materials. At the nanoscale, material interactions are influenced by particle size as much as by bulk material properties. But to take advantage of those properties, you need to be able to reliably produce particles with well-defined dimensions. Tulane University researchers investigated crystal grain growth of aluminum. The
